Ways to Connect

The Northwest Arkansas Women's Shelter has been a haven for victims of abuse and violence for 30 years. The shelter not only provides resources for victims but also educates people about the cycle of violence, its larger implications and how to notice signs of domestic abuse through outreach programs. 

According to the shelter, one in 3 women and one in four men are victims of abuse. 

Life after war can be one of the most challenging obstacles for a veteran. That's why Soldier's Songs and Voices offers Northwest Arkansas veterans an outlet to express themselves and share their experience with other returned soldiers. 

Lee Haight and Jim Hale spoke with Pete Hartman about the veteran-run project and how they are working to heal the wounds of war on the home front. 

We've been hearing from representatives of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Arkansas, teachers, and area business leaders speaking about 'Lemonade Day' coming up on May 5th. Listen below for the latest.

If you're like most Americans, you probably started a lemonade stand.
